User Rating: Excellent
Ease of Use:
Pros:beautiful color; can stand up after being folded. one-hand manipulation
Cons:need a larger basket at the bottom. Need a better cup holder
The Bottom Line: very lightweight, very fashionable; I haven't had to buy an umbrella stroller because I can still use it now that my kid's 21 months.
I was introduced to the Peg Perego brand by a coworker when I was pregnant, and immediately started looking into it.

I settled for this stroller for several reasons:
2. one-hand manipulating capability
Having had this for almost 2 years now, I think I can truly see the pros and cons.
I love how truly lightweight and how truly easy it is to fold and unfold (with one hand, literally). There are many times when I have to hold DD in one arm, and am left w/ just one arm to get open or fold this thing up. Those are the moments when I thank the company over and over for their thoughtfulness.
However, to lift into into the car, of course, would require both hands from me. I'm not that macho to take on this with one hand. =)
I love the locks on the wheels to keep it from running away if I need it parked. I love how the canopy can be pulled all the way down to shield my child from rain and wind.
Now the complaints...
the basket is not big enough! Yes, I'm a woman, I carry a purse, AND a giant diaper bag. The diaper bag won't go in when the kid is sitting on the stroller; you'll have to put the bag in FIRST, then seat the kid. Taking it out is also a pain.
the cup holder does not stay! I misplaced it after the 1st week.
The adjustable backrest is nice, but a little flimsy. It attaches to the canopy via 3 buttons. The string on the back and does the actual adjustment is difficult to manipulate when the child is sitting in the stroller.
